Oregon House of Representatives to meet Saturdays as deadline nears

The Oregon House of Representatives will begin holding Saturday floor sessions next week, Speaker Tina Kotek announced Wednesday, the latest sign that lawmakers are ramping up with an eye toward the Constitutional session deadline five weeks away.

“Because of the need to continue to move bills on the floor, I ask you to hold your Saturdays through the month of June, starting June 1. We will do 10 a.m. floors on Saturdays,” Kotek, D-Portland, announced on the House floor.
